Race Car Wall Art

Does the dad in your life have a need for speed? Celebrate his love for fast cars this Father's Day! Easy crafts make great gifts and this Race Car Wall Art project from Heidi Borchers is perfect for the whole family to create together. Use nuts, bolts, washers and so much more.

Race Car Wall Art


  • Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue
  • Car pattern of your choice
  • Pencil
  • Nuts, bolts, washers, mesh, pop can tabs and miscellaneous materials to represent various shapes for your car
  • Toothpick (to apply glue)
  • Frame
  • Paper, matboard or felt for backing


  1. Choose favorite car pattern, enlarge to fit desired size and print onto white paper. Place pattern on background paper and lightly trace around pattern to create guide lines for gluing. Lay items onto paper to fit within the pattern lines. Rearrange as necessary until you have the exact patterning you want to represent your car.

  2. Apply fine line of glue to paper for smaller items such as this piece of ball chain that I am gluing in place to represent the top of the car.

Do you have a dad that is obcessed with cars or loves car art then look at this super cool wall car art you can make for him using some washers,chain and nic nacks in spare parts case. You can really get creative with this and if you want to step up another notch use a piece of wood and do some woodburning on it and then put the car art on it. Dad will wonder where you got that talent. Don't tell him it was mom.
